NOVA: Dogs Decoded
Dogs have been
domesticated for longer than any other animal on the planet and
humans have developed a unique relationship with these furry friends.
We treat our pets like a part of the family and we feel that they
can understand us in a way other animals cannot. Now, new research is
revealing what dog lovers have suspected all along: dogs have an
uncanny ability to read and respond to human emotions. "Dogs Decoded"
investigates new discoveries in genetics that are illuminating the
origin of dogs -- with revealing implications for the evolution of
human culture as well. NOVA also travels to Siberia, where the
mystery of dogs' domestication is being repeated -- in foxes.

This program is about dog
trainer Jennifer Arnold, the service dogs she trains and the families
whose lives they have changed. Arnold's non-profit organization,
Canine Assistants, trains dogs to assist people with a variety of
disabilities. Based in part on Arnold's forthcoming book of the same
name, the film also presents the science that explains the amazing
dog/human bond and what makes Arnold's training techniques so
effective for anyone with a canine in the family.
